Why George W. Bush was right

George W. Bush was president of the United States less than five years ago.

We learned after 9/11 that a presidential briefing paper in August 2001 was headlined "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." But Tuesday in the New York Times, investigative reporter Kurt Eichenwald says the White House received ominous warnings as early as May 2001.


Jeb Bush to Obama: Stop blaming my brother

Jeb Bush says it's time for President Obama to stop blaming his brother for the nation's problems. "I mean, look, the guy (Obama) was dealt a difficult hand, no question about it," Bush said on NBC's Meet The Press. "But he's had three years. His policies have failed."


Dems slam Ryan over Social Security privatization

Mitt Romney

Democrats are eagerly renewing their fight against privatizing Social Security now that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has picked Paul Ryan as his running mate. It was a fight that didn't go well for the GOP when President George W. Bush pushed the idea in 2005.


Cheney: Obama 'one of our weakest presidents'
